I have just been informed by my childs daycare centre that they have found a few headlice on her head, and a few eggs, and because she has never had them before I have a couple of questions.
What is the best and most effective way to get rid of them? Any products work better than others?
and also, how long would it have taken for them to become noticeable on my daughter? (I am trying to figure out where she got them from, not that it matters, but she had a sleep over 5 nights ago, and am wondering if she picked it up from one of the kids here, or if it was earlier or later than this, so that I can let any parents that she has had contact with the kids know.)

lice breaker comb and conditioner... its the only comb i will use, it is the most effective comb.
i don't bother with any of the solutions as i have used so many and then had to comb out live bugs after anyway.
if there are only a few lice and eggs i would say you are probably looking at the 5 day window. the cycle is pretty quick for headlice so they multiply very quickly!
*and now i am itching!*

Conditioner and a comb. Cheapest and most effective method. Comb through conditioner, and go through strand by strand.
And yes, totally plausible that she got it from the sleepover.
